Misprints
by Theresa Cunningham

Every definition has exactly one letter misprinted.  For example, the correct definition
of "puzzle" is "riddle", but here it might be misprinted as "middle".  The misprint may
appear anywhere in the definition; not necessarily in its first letter.  Note that in the
case of double definition clues, both definitions will contain a misprint.

The letters which correct each misprint will also complete the attached acrostic.
